swimming & soup

I was psyched to fit a swim in after work today!  2100 yards in 45 minutes.  I love swimming, it works your entire body and I feel so great afterwards.  No aches or pains like I sometimes get while running.  Plus, it is great for your body to switch things up!

Before my swim, I snacked on a homemade granola bar.  After my swim, I was more than ready for dinner.

I kept it simple tonight with leftover Coconut Red Lentil Soup, cheesy bread and a champagne mango!

The soup was still good!!  I made it into more of a comfort meal with lots of cheese. 🙂  I love cheese!  And, comfort food is exactly what I needed after a long day.

And, I really felt like a mango – sweet and juicy!

Just what I wanted.  A healthy, nutritious and delicious meal in just a matter of seconds.  This is why leftovers are key, so that you can eat healthy and not have to cook every night.  Plus, it will save you some money too!  You could double up one recipe per week and have lunch or dinner for an extra day or two.  I am definitely picky about my leftovers though – somethings I like, somethings I don’t!

  1. I am big on leftovers too. I don’t usually eat them from restaurants but I’m great at eating my own leftovers. I would never have the time or patience to cook every single night!

  2. Your first paragraph definitely made me want to give swimming a try! & leftover soup: delicious. I love making big batches or at least enough soup/casserole for 2 days. Some leftovers even tend to taste better on day 2. How grand!
